What a great idea!

The concept of getting artists to take on a task at random, and one that may have no bearing at all to the realms of their usual work, has resulted in this most inspiring creative explosion. They have clearly chosen their own areas to work in because of their skill in it, and because they have identified it as the best way they can communicate their creative self. So, to ask someone to take on a whole other, possibly alien, means of communicating is a lot more complicated than you might think. This book, it goes without saying, is very inspiring and a lot of fun. I very much enjoyed following the artists' journeys into unknown areas and seeing what could be produced when they were not in their comfort zone.

Creativity

This book is a new approach in terms of creative design books. Creative Grab Bag Inspiring Challenges for Artists, Illustrators and Designers by Ethan Bodnar mainly represents a series of simple tasks created by the author and given to famous designers and artists to complete and give insights on the creative process they’ve been through. What is interesting is that the tasks are not common, but outstanding, out of the ordinary and this develops creativity and perspective. You can learn how different professionals approached the tasks and what their outcomes were.
